Philippine Esports Awards

As the gaming industry continues to evolve, the Philippine Esports Awards aims to become the beacon of recognition, not just as a ceremony, but a celebration of the achievements and dedication of the players, teams, organizers and personalities, may it be a newcomer or a pioneer in the esports scene. With more categories being added to honor more individuals and groups for their dedication to the industry, expect a night of suspense and excitement as we unravel the winners for each category. 

“There have been many significant advances in the nation’s esports efforts this year, with AP Bren winning the M5 World Championships and the Philippines hosting the MLBB World Championships, among other notable achievements,” said Raymund Liboro, Executive Director of the Philippine Esports Awards. 

“We are introducing new awards, including lifetime awards, esports company of the year, stage host of the year, desk host of the year, and manager of the year, to honor more key esports trailblazers in our country. This year and in the future, we will incorporate more esports expert discussions into the awards selection process. “
